Holiday Remnants

There is nothing like being home for the holidays, where the food is unbeatable, the decorations are inviting, and friends and family make the season festive. This Christmas had to be the warmest that I could remember, and to have the ovens and all four burners on for majority of the day made the house unbearably hot. It rained the entire day, we are talking deluge instead of the traditional snow. But, no matter the consequences, this was still one of the best celebrations, as the majority of the family was together along with friends!!!

Here’s to continued good friends & family in the 2016!
